BENEFITING: 1040 INITIATIVE

Amy Harper

THE STORY:

It is estimated that approximately 50,000 to 100,000 women develop obstetric fistulas each year. The resulting urinary and fecal incontinence and infection leads them to be outcast from their communities, removing any source of social support or means of providing for their families and promoting a never-ending cycle of poverty. In February 2014, I will be traveling with a team of surgeons to perform life-changing pelvic reconstructive surgery to repair these fistulas and promote safe vaginal deliveries and preventative healthcare in order to reverse this cycle and help these women be re-assimilated into their communities.
